Hello you lovely people! I would firstly like to acknowledge the fact that I now have 150 followers reading my blog, so a huge thank you for that, I’m amazed my blog posts get read so again, THANKS!
I made these biscuits as part of Father’s Day, placed in nice tin as a thoughtful gift; they were enjoyed and had a really nice crunch to them. I was surprised how they turned out, from one small teaspoon came a huge biscuit (witchcraft?). Greasing the tray is essential for them to be able to come off in one piece – make sure you leave them to cool for a few mins after coming out of the oven, allowing the to harden. Really simple biscuits with minimal ingredients, yummy too!
Ingredients (makes around 45 biscuits):
- 150 g softened butter
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 175 g granulated sugar
- 75 g self raising flour
- 75 g desiccated coconut
- 100 g porridge oats
- Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas mark 4. Lightly grease 2 baking trays.
- Add the butter, golden syrup and sugar to a medium pan and heat gently until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the flour, coconut and oats, mixing until evenly blended.
- Place large teaspoonfuls of the mixture well apart on the trays, and flatten slightly with the back of the spoon.
- Bake for 8-10 mins until they have spread out flat and are lightly browned at the edges. Leave to cool on the tray for a few minutes, then carefully lift off with a palette knife and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
